Fathi happy with eliminating defending Champions, Berkane …Hints on NAPSA Stars departure in near future

Zambia’s debutants in the CAF Confederation Cup on Wednesday afternoon managed to record their first win of the group stage beating defending champions Berkane FC and in the process eliminating them from this years’ campaign.

Speaking to the ZamFoot Crew during a post-match interview from the National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka, the pensioners’ gaffer Mohamed Fathi was delighted with the victory heaping praise on his team for playing in according to the game plan.

Fathi also hinted at his departure from the club soon saying he was winding up his stay at the club and wanted to be remembered fondly when he leaves.

“It was a tough game playing with the current champions they have a good team well organized and playing good football, but I think our boys played well to respect our flag as NAPSA Stars and Zambia as we managed to win,” he said.

“The victory means a lot to me, I’m ending my NAPSA Stars journey but before I leave I would want to leave happiness to people I think am winding up so I want people to remember me when I leave,” Fathi added.

Fathi concluded by indicating that the club was naturing two young boys in Doisy Soko and Jimmy Mukeya for club and country and went on to heap praise on the two players.

Meanwhile, his counterparty Juan Benali said his side lost due to a lot of chances his charges missed.

“When you miss a lot of chances you will pay, we created a lot of them but we couldn’t score that’s how football is,” Benali said.

Doisy Soko scored the only goal of the game to hand the Pensioners a 1-0 win. The result confirmed the elimination of Berkane as NAPSA Stars were already out even before the start of the match following JS Kabylie’s win over Cotton Sport.

    I don’t agree with Fathi’s statement that NAPSA featured well in the competition. Any how I didn’t watch the other games as I stopped watching after watching them squander two goal lead AT HOME against the Algerians. I saw one of the Napsa boys smiling when taking a free kick, when Algerians were in panicky situation. At the time Napsa should have been striving to increase the lead. I feel Napsa were not well Psyched for the competition. 1.The head Coach was away 2. an influential player Mayuka was away for whatever reason. Succinctly we lost it for luck of seriousness.
